Michter’s Plans Own Distillery in Louisville
The fabled Michter's brand of bourbon and rye finally gets a new home.
Posted: December 16, 2011
(continued from page 1)
Barrel No. 102
117.3 proof (58.65 percent alcohol)
Appearance: The color is exceedingly dark, a deep amber, verging on chocolate. Drips down the glass slow and thick.
Nose: A mighty aroma of tantalizing caramel, butterscotch, vanilla and fruit is beguiling.
Palate: It explodes with tang in the mouth, with the first thrush being licorice. As it calms it turns to fruitier flavors with some wood. Quite a challenging mouthful.
Finish: Fruit really comes on at the finish with some nuts rather deep into the finale.
Michter's Unblended American Whiskey
83.4 proof (41.7 percent alcohol)
Appearance: This whiskey is made using previously used barrels. Hence it is not a straight whiskey as other reviewed here are. Furthermore its color is markedly lighter. Its fat legs are rather quick once they release.
Nose: The very floral nose is reminiscent of Irish whiskey.
Palate: Hard candy is overawning flavor here with butterscotch and a bit of tutti-fruiti.
Finish: The finish is short as it snaps closed with a bit of tartness.
